"Serious Packing for Photokina" - Digital Photography Podcast 241

In terms of photo assignment preparation, Germany is not a sunny beach on the Hawaiian Islands. At photokina, I have copious amounts of photos to shoot, gigabytes of video to record, hours or audio to capture, and lots of publishing. As much as I love my Canon S90 and iPad, I need the big guns for this trip. And I need to pack all that equipment wisely so I can move it from California, to Munich, to Cologne. This week I talk about DSLRs, fast lenses, and the Lowepro Pro Trekker 300 AWbackpack. I'm going to pack tight and fly right. Tune-in to find out how.

I've also published an article about bringing your gear on a plane, Make Sure Your Carry-On Gear Gets Onboard, if you want more information.

Great podcast as usual, Derrick.

Since you're going to be doing interviews while you're over at photokina, I was hoping you could ask the folks you talk to at Nikon, Canon, etc. a question for me. I think the waterproof/rugged high end compact camera is the one niche that has yet to be filled yet. I'm thinking of something like a Canon S95 or Nikon P7000 with the waterproofing and shockproofing of a Canon D10 or Panasonic TS2. Could you ask whether they will be coming out with such a camera, or are at least exploring such a model? It would be much appreciated.
